I have found a new love of drawing pumpkin stencils since I started drawing them for our sites a few years ago. The worst part about it is that there is no way I’m ever able to carve this many pumpkins once Halloween comes! If I had to choose one pumpkin stencil from the scary stencils below, I think it would have to be the wolf. Or maybe the evil angel. Or maybe both! These are a little more advanced and will take longer to carve. Use them on a large pumpkin to get the full effect of fear in your trick-or-treaters!

Funny Pumpkin Carving Templates

As my kids have gotten older, they have acquired a bit of a dry, smart aleck-y sense of humor thanks to their wise-cracking father. So I drew up these more funny pumpkin stencils for them as they hit their tween and early teen years. Little kids won’t really get the humor in a Facebook themed pumpkin, nor a jack-o-lantern with a brace-face, but these 6 humorous designs were a huge hit in our house. Since my kids are a little geeky like their mom, they especially liked the emoticons and the “Like” button templates:

How to Transfer Stencils to Your Pumpkin

Make sure you choose a stencil that matches the overall shape of your pumpkin. Choose taller carving designs for tall pumpkins, wider carving designs for short and fat pumpkins.

Print out the pumpkin stencils and make sure they will fit. If it is too small or too large, use your browser’s “Print Preview” setting and experiment with printing out the stencils at different percentage scale sizes.

Temporarily tape the stencil to your pumpkin, then use the tip of a nail to outline the black areas by poking holes through the paper into the skin of the pumpkin. Remove the paper and you have the outline of the stencil left on the pumpkin to carve.

If you are old enough to use a razor blade, this is also a good way to transfer the design – just know that the razor won’t cut all the way through. This is just for transferring the design to the pumpkin surface. Use a very sharp knife to cut out the black areas along the lines you transferred. Using a narrow, serrated, strong knife really does make pumpkin carving a ton easier.

My Little Pony is one of those classic cartoons that never seems to get old or go away. I think it’s because the characters are so darn cute! For these pumpkin stencils, I wanted to create some really cute ones, but also include a much more simplified version for those of you who aren’t interested in carving intricate pumpkin designs. So the last template below only has 8 pieces to carve!

By the way, if you like these, you might also want to check out our Hello Kitty pumpkin face carving patterns, too. She’s just as adorable!

One of the most popular pages on Cartoon Jr. is our Monster High Coloring Pages – and I’m not entirely surprised! Those doll characters are super-adorable, plus they are  perfect fit for Halloween! This year I decided to draw up new Monster High carving patterns for your pumpkins – not just because they are so popular, but also because I knew my daughter would want one, too. It’s hard to pick a favorite in this set, but if I had to choose, I’d say the cutest one is Clawdeen Wolf. That big mane of hair plus her pretty face make for a pretty awesome pumpkin idea, don’t you think?

I think I have found a new love of drawing pumpkin stencils. I’ve spent the last week drawing up nearly 20 of them, and the worst part about it is that there is no way I’m going to be able to carve that many pumpkins once Halloween comes!

Did You Already Carve One of These Pumpkins?

Send us a photo! Here’s the werewolf that my son and I carved just this last weekend!

One of my bigger summer regrets is not going to see The Avengers in the theaters – my son especially was not too happy that we couldn’t fit it in! But the DVD release (or Amazon instant video, as we buy ‘em in our house) is out TODAY! I’ve already bought my copy – my kids are going to be squealing with happiness when they get home from school.

Last week, I decided I wanted to draw up a set of pumpkin carving patterns of the Avengers characters. Little did I realize what an endeavor I was taking on! These stencils took me forever to draw – like almost two full days. They aren’t easy stencils, either (except the logo stencils, of course). I’d say they are on the high side of “needs-a-decent-amount-of-patience-to-complete”. And they are going to look better on large sized pumpkins, because there are some fairly small cuts that will need to be made and that will be difficult to reproduce on a smaller scale.

That being said, I have to say I’m pretty dang proud of this set! It is always difficult to take a full-color, three dimensional character and make it look both recognizable and appealing in such a flat, two-dimensional way. I’m particularly pleased with Captain America and Black Widow – whom I almost didn’t draw up! I was afraid that her silhouette would look too generic and just like any other female comic book character, but when I showed it to my son, he recognized her immediately – whew!

Our most popular posts this Halloween have been our pumpkin stencils. We have Disney pumpkin stencils, Star Wars pumpkin stencils, and even Spongebob pumpkin carving stencils – plus more! Since Animal Jr. didn’t have any pumpkin carving ideas, I figured I should throw together some good Halloween animal pumpkin stencils. I have to say these are some of my new favorites! I’m in love with the dragon stencil!

for many reasons, this summer seems to be going on f-o-r-e-v-e-r. Mostly, though, because we have had warm weather since March – for Chicago, this has been a complete freak of nature! So even though it is still only July, my body time clock feels like it should be late September and that we should be getting ready for Halloween. This has been rather unfortunate because I went to the craft stores last week, and though they have a few fall themed crafts, they are still sorely lacking in great Halloween craft items. So to appease my cravings for my favorite holiday of the year, I decided to draw up a few new sets of pumpkin patterns! My set of Disney pumpkin patterns are by far the most popular every year – so it only made sense to add to that collection with a new set of Disney characters. I have a Pixar Pumpkins set forthcoming – and today’s set is from some of my favorite classic Disney cartoons.
